The versatility of stamps and ink is the best part of my everyday. When it comes to making beautiful cards or wedding invitations the sky is the limit. I wanted to see how the new StazOn pigment would work on various handmade papers that I often use for invitations and there’s no surprise that this ink is made for so much more than the ordinary. Take a look at what I stamped on this invitation all using this amazing ink.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Print the details of the invitation on smooth foiled handmade paper and trim to the desired size. Mine measures 5 x 7”.


Step 2

Next, I stamped a small little flower randomly all over the printed invitation using StazOn in Snowflake. It’s there and looks amazing but hard to see on a photo.


Step 3

Trim a piece of acetate the same size as the invitation details and stamp a lace border at the bottom and the same small flower as previously on the top half of the acetate piece.


Step 4

Use the same small flower and stamp it onto your silk ribbon using the StazOn Pigment. This was my best discovery that it stamped perfectly, was dry instantly and looks amazing.


Step 5

Layer a handmade piece of textured paper at the bottom, then the invitation details portion, handmade silk paper with the stamped acetate on top of it all. Adhere the paper pieces together with On Point Glue using a small drop only.


Step 6

Punch 2 holes at the top of the layered stack and tie with the stamped ribbon into a bow.


Step 7

All the stamped layers look so amazing on top of each other and this ink worked on all the surfaces I tried and tested – and the end result is simply exquisite.

See How to Use Instant Drying Pigment Ink for Wedding Invitations

Happy spring, everyone! This month we are focusing on wedding themes and I thought I would share some ideas using large floral stamps. When you are mass producing cards or invitations, you want to minimize the number of steps when creating. So using large images will save you a lot of time. Creating with a mess-free ink, like StazOn Pigment, is also key because it dries instantly and won’t smear. Lastly, for quick embellishing, use the Sheer Shimmer Stix to add the final wow factor. And your simple wedding project is done!
